LIBRARY NEWS & PROGRAMS 
PaintNite Fundraiser
Thursday March 8 @ 7 PM

Libraries are great resources in their communities. Last year, we had over 66,000 visits to our library and saved people thousands of dollars on books, programs, services, music CDs, DVDs, eBooks, museum admissions and more. Help support the Patterson Library while having fun at this great fundraising event. A PaintNite artist will guide you step-by-step through two lively hours of creativity as you paint this beautiful barn scene. No prior art experience required! The $45 fee includes supplies, instruction, a glass of wine, plenty of fun and an original masterpiece by you! Ages 21+ only. Tickets are limited and can only be purchased online. To purchase your tickets, click: https://www.paintnite.com/events/-1004902.
